Whether it’s medical care, adoption services or community outreach, DDR does whatever it can to improve the lives of the city’s stray dogs, that no dog is forgotten.

    When you’re from Germany and see a guy with a shirt with "DDR" on it, you don’t think of rescuing dogs…

  4. Misery on August 16, 2022 at 6:48 am

    As a German, I’d like to talk about his sweater…

    How do I get a service dog

  9. YOW Gyrl on August 16, 2022 at 6:52 am

    The guy, Hush, talks about the woman being a responsible dog owner in a city that has hundreds of abandoned dogs, and he talks about unwanted litters, I see at least 4 pregnant dogs and a couple who are nursing. Where do all of these pups go? Why isn’t trap neuter release being used?

  10. David Moro on August 16, 2022 at 6:52 am

    Sooo adorable

  11. Nadia R on August 16, 2022 at 6:52 am

    having a dog is easier than having a kid, just saying. that is counting the 3 walks a day and training and everything. its still easier. but i do agree people dont realise the big responsibility that having a dog is

  12. Alecksa on August 16, 2022 at 6:53 am

    Wow that guy he’s amazing

  13. Billijo Maynard on August 16, 2022 at 6:57 am

    Lovely, all those empty houses and how many homeless in Detroit? Time for that city to straiten up and fly right.

  14. Bayou Boi on August 16, 2022 at 7:00 am

    I love dogs. I have three. I’ve caught strays and found their homes. But I just can’t help but wonder how many people they could help instead of animals. After all, human life is more valuable, not that dogs lives aren’t, but….if I saw my favorite dog and my rotten neighbor drowning, and had to chose to save only one…I would chose my neighbor.

  15. Frappelychee on August 16, 2022 at 7:01 am

    From abandoned neighborhoods to a clean HomeDepot parking lot full of upbeat volunteers making dog houses… beautiful :’)

  16. Pamela Barnett on August 16, 2022 at 7:01 am

    Those dislikes are people who are idiots

  17. Nantia J on August 16, 2022 at 7:02 am

    The stories you don’t see on the news.

  18. Alecksa on August 16, 2022 at 7:02 am

    Victoria ❤️

  19. Dynamic Audio Mastering on August 16, 2022 at 7:03 am

    How ridiculous, I dream of having one of those houses. In Southern California we don’t have enough houses and guess what happens. Supply and demand keeps the prices high.

  20. Philip Spatz on August 16, 2022 at 7:05 am

    Very good work but spaying and neutering should be priority……

  21. Betty Anne on August 16, 2022 at 7:05 am

    Is no one gonna mention the dog just munching away on that butterfly?

  22. Psyglitch V on August 16, 2022 at 7:08 am

    i love Vicky

  23. TMS 2000 on August 16, 2022 at 7:08 am

    I get they r trying to help these animals, but get them fixed . I know in NC they had a program that if you were not financially able you can get your dog fixed for a very affordable price. I did that in 2002 and I think I paid $38 to get my female fixed. I understand not all animals r gona become family pets, speak to vets etc. , trap the ones you can, get them fixed, if they r not able to be home, release them , put in a sanctuary, at least they won’t be creating more litters.

  24. Rupkatha M on August 16, 2022 at 7:08 am

    As an Indian this concept is so foreign to me. Our dogs are so different.

  25. Stefanie Herrmann on August 16, 2022 at 7:09 am

    I am very impressed by the calm and friendly way people act out there in Detroit. How they do the possible and help the dogs on the spot and don’t bring them to shelters or kill them. I donated a little bit of money although I am in a far away country.

  26. Dagmar Heinz on August 16, 2022 at 7:11 am

    A trap with foot and water

  27. Diogenes on August 16, 2022 at 7:14 am

    6:57 its actually quite a nice environment… for dogs! 😀

  28. Pasta Chocolate on August 16, 2022 at 7:16 am

    i dont get it. why are houses are abandoned? why do some people just leave their houses?

  29. Debbie on August 16, 2022 at 7:19 am

    That rap blows ….

  30. Kathrine on August 16, 2022 at 7:20 am

    god, I love pit mixes! They are such amazing and stunning looking dogs

  31. Chantel Barcomb on August 16, 2022 at 7:20 am

    That older black man at the end KNOWS how to properly take care of his dog the right way, all the way down to telling the kids to go home so they didn’t get them or the dog into trouble.

  32. Lili an on August 16, 2022 at 7:22 am

    17:31 the white dog in the background also getting some love

  33. Upchurch countrygirl on August 16, 2022 at 7:25 am

    They need beds

  34. Cassandra Harris on August 16, 2022 at 7:25 am

    I love the grey, butt-wiggling pit ♡

  35. Star Galaxy on August 16, 2022 at 7:26 am

    Bless these people doing their best helping these dogs. It’s just so frustrating and sad to see our society to treat these living creatures so terribly.

  36. Miss Moxie on August 16, 2022 at 7:26 am

    Well if this guy helps dogs I’m going to buy all his albums and promote the heck out of him

  37. Afia Oduro-Manu on August 16, 2022 at 7:27 am

    Came for the queen, stayed for the dogs

  38. MsJaime1977 on August 16, 2022 at 7:29 am

    Wow such a waste of a suburb! So many homeless people could be living in these houses. This would not happen in Australia

  39. Astrogirlau on August 16, 2022 at 7:30 am

    All I here are excuses. Capture, desex and release. Oh the dog doesn’t like being indoors … too fckn bad.

  40. Cheesus on August 16, 2022 at 7:30 am

    They’d spend less money on food and vaccinations if they got the dogs spayed/neutered

  41. Joe seph on August 16, 2022 at 7:31 am

    This is so awesome, Victoria looking fly as fk too. But in all seriousness, the stray pits need to be euthanized to solve the problem.

  42. Jen Scheibner on August 16, 2022 at 7:31 am

    Free water that I pay for every month. Victoria welcome to our nightmare.

  43. Castor on August 16, 2022 at 7:34 am

    I have a pretty pit, she’s a tiny bit out of shape and to a threatening stranger, she can look scary but I promise you she will be the scared one. She’s a big ass scaredy cat. I personally have nothing against bully breeds but where I live they seem to be the most consistently thrown out breed. I’ve seen probably hundreds roaming around. Pits boxers shepherds.. it’s horrible and I’d love to give these dogs the perfect home if I had the space.

  44. Jay Bisser on August 16, 2022 at 7:36 am

    I think somebody is cutting onions in my kitchen or something as I’m watching this video. That’s what I’m blaming..
